Forgotten Fairies and Butterflies

Rum and Robots

I wait for sleep to drift like a cloud with smiles into my room
my eyelids, like muted shutters, as I cover them with sheets
silence is a dragging chain that rocks the chair nearby
silkworms are moving in their cocoon in a Country far away
yearning for an answer, to a question, I seek GOD as I pray

butterflies and forgotten tooth fairies come to sing
wind rustles leaves and sends fragrances through red bricks
my mother’s hand once rubbed my forehead when I was five
a ballerina stands in mid-air turning to the sound of time
grateful as I awaken to the song of the Blue Jay and sunshine
